2015 Parducci Small Lot Petite Sirah

Parducci Petite SirahWhen you find a wine with a long pedigree, that is able to age in the cellar for many years and get it for around $10, you’d think you have hit the jackpot. You will come out a winner if you seek out this tasty gem, loaded with dark dried fruit of blackberry, black raspberry and plum. Add spice, black pepper, chocolate and a smoked meat character to it’s well rounded flavors and fine tannin’s, this youngster appears a bit tight upon opening but will gradually develop in your glass over a period of time. A 2 to 3 hour decant would also be quite helpful. From the oldest established winery in the Mendocino Valley, at 14.5% alcohol, luck be your lady tonight if you buy a case and see how it will grow interest in your cellar for the next 5 to 10 years.
